I havent tried it yet but i want to, Man of the fall has a thread in here about it, he went with Bracket outdoors or something like that up in Ohio. All the shows I've seen on it looks like they shot carp or sting rays, and maybe some gar(sp). It really looks like a lot of fun, I've heard not to use you good hunting bow for it though cause it will be bouncing around the boat and could knock your rest and sight out of tune, also pulling back your #70 bow will wear out your arms, I think most use a special set up with draw weight of #30-#40.
I would really like to give it a whorl. Especially since I have a new bow:\\\\:D/ Colorado makes it pretty hard to do it though. I am pretty sure that someone told me that there are like only two public lakes where you can do it. It would be nice if there were more public options to try it out. I need to pick up the tackle for it and head out to Barr.
If you're lucky enough to be on private land and can leave your stand up during the off season you can tie an old piece of cloth or something of the sort to your stand. I like to use an old camo bandana that I have. That way the deer get used to the movement and eventually don't bother even looking up when there is slight movement. This may just give you the time to draw your bow or raise your gun without being detected.
